Resolutions revisited

25 Apr

The nice thing about setting goals is you can always go back and reevaluate.  Since we’re past the first quarter of 2012, it felt like a good time so see how I’m doing. Surprisingly, I’m right on track.

  1. See Sebastian at least every three months. We’re doing well with this. I visited him at the start of the year, and he surprised me with a visit during Valentine’s week. We’re planning a vacation for the end of May, and I cannot wait to see him again. The gap from his February visit to May will be a little over three months, but I’ll take that any day over five. I can’t believe last year we went from June to November without seeing each other. Never again.
  2. Learn German. I reset my Rosetta Stone lessons to start over from the beginning, and re-enrolled in studio sessions. I’m only a few weeks in and already surprised by how much I remember – and how much I forgot. Each week I try to do two lessons. Maybe I’ll be fluent yet!
  3. Read more. This has been a fun goal to meet. I received a Kindle for Christmas, and I’m absolutely in love with it. I thought I would miss turning pages, but the technology is amazing. The screen really looks like a real page, which I love for my eyes, my books download in seconds, and I’m definitely reading more. So far this year, I’ve read: Wicked by Gregory Maguire, The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins and the Fifty Shades of Grey series by E.L. James. Looking forward to downloading more books for my upcoming beach vacation!
  4. Get back in shape. This is still a struggle, but I like a good challenge. I recently completed a 5K and I’m planning to run a 10K in May. It’s nice to work toward something, and slowly but surely I’m getting there.

I’m proud of my progress and glad that I set realistic goals. What were your resolutions? Are you on track to reach your goals?
